>>5 Stocks Poised for Big Breakouts

From a technical perspective, SPNC is gapping higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $18.40 with monster upside volume. This move is coming after shares of SPNC dipped sharply a few trading sessions ago from its high of $19.70 to $16.79. This stock is now quickly moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if SPNC manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance levels at $19.70 to $19.73 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SPNC as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $18.40 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 181,521 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then SPNC will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $22 to $23.
